Mayo Clinic Deletes Page That Admits Hydroxychloroquine Can Be Used to Treat Covid

The Mayo Clinic recently admitted on their website that “Hydroxychloroquine may be used to treat coronavirus (COVID-19) in certain hospitalized patients.”

Their site was updated with the new endorsement on Sunday.

For those “who spread lies about hydroxy, this one’s for u.”

The information listed on the website at the time of his post was then picked up by others on social media.
